Construction in India - Key Trends and Opportunities to 2023

India’s construction industry regained growth momentum in 2018, with output expanding by 8.8% in real terms - up from 1.9% in 2017. This was driven by positive developments in economic conditions, improvement in investor confidence and investments in transport infrastructure, energy and housing projects. In the 2018-2019 budget, the government increased its expenditure towards infrastructure development by 20.9%, going from INR4.9 trillion (US$75.9 billion) in the Financial Year (FY) 2017-2018 to INR6.0 trillion (US$89.2 billion) in FY2018-2019.

The industry is expected to continue to expand over the forecast period (2019-2023), driven by the government’s efforts to develop the country’s infrastructure and improve housing sector.The government’s continued investment in transport infrastructure, energy and residential projects under flagship programs such as Bharatmala scheme, Housing for All 2022, the UDAN (Ude Desh ka Aam Nagrik) scheme and the Aayushman Bharat program is expected to drive the growth of the industry over the forecast period.

In January 2019, the government outlined the investments under the second phase of Bharatmala scheme, which will drive the road infrastructure developments in the country. Moreover, population growth and urbanization will also drive the need for better infrastructure facilities in the country.

The industry’s output value in real terms is expected to rise at a CAGR of 6.44% over the forecast period, compared to 4.31% during the review period (2014-2018).

Key Highlights
- GlobalData expects the residential construction market to retain its leading position over the forecast period, and account for 30.1% of the industry’s total value in 2023.

In January 2019, the government allocated INR1.0 trillion (US$14.7 billion) to construct affordable houses in the country by 2022.
- Forecast-period growth in the infrastructure construction market will be supported by public and private sector investment in transport infrastructure.

Accordingly, it aims to generate 175GW of electricity through renewable sources by 2022.
